Synopsis (Goodreads):
Losing your ability to speak at the age of seventeen; it’s not normal or fair.
But trauma, has a way of throwing normality out the window.

Dani lives anything but a normal life.
Her sister is married to one of the biggest names in Hollywood.
Her best friends are rockstar duo AD2.
And she has more love around her than most people experience in a lifetime.
But that doesn't change the fact their parents are dead.
Or that it's her fault.

It seems her new normal is being a mute, living on the inside, unable to actually communicate on the outside.
That is until Hollywood’s newest heartthrob Lincoln Greene hires her as his assistant for the summer.
He's gorgeous, completely unavailable, and unobtainable.
But that doesn't stop her from wondering...if things were different...would he want her?
If she was whole, would he be the other half?
Thoughts on Capture: I liked this book. Quite a bit. It was a little over the top at times, but we are dealing with actors and rock stars and they are, by definition, over the top. So, I guessed it worked.

That said, we had the sexy Hollywood actor meeting a girl who hasn't dealt with the issues surrounding her parents' deaths scenario. Dani's a little broken and Lincoln's a...actually, he's pretty normal and down to earth as far as Hollywood hunks go. He's confident, yet weirdly awkward when it comes to Dani and that was both maddening and hilarious.

I liked Lincoln and I liked Dani, but I REALLY liked Zane. The dude's carrying around some seriously mysterious baggage and I want to know MORE. Also, it amuses me that he can't keep a shirt on to save his life.

Besides Zane, there's also a robust cast of supporting characters. I was intrigued enough by Demetri and Alec to go hunt down the first series. What can I say? I like brooding, mysterious bad boys in my literature.
